secretary of state for secretary clinton and host of the radio talk show host of the dana show. let me start with you. i'm getting weary with the relentless attacks first on susan rice and now on hillary clinton. there's a whisper to it and it's getting, i think, washington orientated rather than in the national interest of america. what do you think? >> i think there are legitimate questions that still need to be answered. as hillary clinton said today, the fbi is still working on the investigation. director mueller was in libya and tunisia recently. i get disappointed when people give half of the story. the guy has been released. as hillary clinton said today, yes, but he's under constant surveillance within tunisia and following the rule of law and as more evidence becomes available, they are prepared to act on him again. i think as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happening over the last few days to understand the evolving threat from al qaeda and to deal appropriately with tha
bloodied by one of the most notorious shootings in california history. dana bash was over at the emotional announcement on capitol hill. tell our viewers, dana, how it unfolded. >> reporter: wolf, of all of the gun control measures that president obama announced earlier this month, banning the assault weapons at least reviving the ban is going to be the most difficult to pass here in congress. even the primary senate sponsor says it will take years. for dianne feinstein, it's personal. >> supervisor harvey milk have been shot and killed. >> reporter: the death of her colleagues, including harvey milk, the first openly gay public official in america was so traumatic, she rarely discusses it. you were very close to that tragic shooting. but here at the launch, she announced it great detail. >> i was the one who found supervisor milk's body and put a finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse. once you have been through one of these episodes, one you see what the crime scene is like, it changes your view of weapons. >> she put on an elaborate event. even getting permission from d.c. to dis
's bipartisan goodwill already seems to be a very distant memory. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by. >> reporter: republicans are arguing that the president is trying to foist the center right country in the words of the senate minority leader. he said, not a great way to start off the second term. the senate republican leader had his sound bite on the president's speech ready to go. >> the era of liberalism is unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech certainly brings back memories of the democratic party of ages past. >> reporter: far different from the restrained response the house gop leader gave us hours after the speech. >> you know, i think that the president did a fine job certainly laying out what he would like to see happen as far as the future of the country. we have some differences. hopefully we can bridge those differences. >> reporter: cantor was coming from a bipartisan post inaugural lunch. now with the inauguration over and the pressure to be respectful past, conservatives are eager to share their disgust. >> he's trying to throw a bone
. obviously this game will win out tonight. correspondent dana bash joins us. who is planning to be there and who isn't? which i know is a political statement in a political town. >> what's fascinating is they built this platform, 1,600 seats are available on the platform. it is tradition for the supreme court justices to be there. they will be there for the joint chiefs of staff to be there. they will be there. and for governors, senators and lawmakers as well as, of course, members of the president and vice president's family. for the most part, we do expect lawmakers to be there. one thing that we were sort of looking at is whether house republicans are going to come. deirdre walsh, our house producer, was at the republican retreat last week. and she heard several members saying, you know, it's a long weekend, a holiday weekend. i'm going to go home. they didn't feel compelled to be here necessarily. we'll be watching to see that. this is traditionally a nonpartisan event. i don't even say bipartisan. this is a tribute to the system working. so it is a second inaugural, but
, he'll be on the west front of the capitol for his ceremonial swearing in and inaugural speech. dana bash is on the west front. what a view from up there. >> that's right. it is a remarkable view. if our viewers can see what we're seeing and what the president will see tomorrow, you can effectively see down to where you are down the national mall to about the middle of the mall i should say. a spectacular view. sparsely populated right now but it will look different tomorrow. take you back to where i am right now and i am in front of where the president will give the ceremonial, i guess, the ceremonial oath behind me. this is a platform that they started building three and a half months ago and candy, you know, you are here regularly every four years, 1600 people sit on this platform and it's the hottest ticket in town. it is going to be really a remarkable symbol, i think, and everybody here, democrats and republicans, say symbol of the fact there aren't tanks in the streets, no matter the political differences we see every day in the capitol, this is something seamless considering.
was using performance enhancing drugs of some kind. >> i talked to author dana coyle who had written a book, one of the things he said about tyler hamilton in getting tyler to talk about his own doping. someone who has lied for so long, can't tell the full truth. it comes out in drips and drabs. he felt this is what we were witnessing with lance armstrong. it wasn't smart to give such a big interview as the first because the truth -- he's not able to tell the full truth because he's still saying he's a bully but he wasn't saying he was directly pressuring anybody on his team. >> he had to be careful because he still has some liability legal and civil liability, and he was probably coached not to put too much out there that might be thrown back in his face in a court of law. he's already lost tens of millions of dollars in endorsements and potential earnings. and the other aspect of this is there are going to be some people who are skeptical even if he's largely telling the truth now. they're going to say he's only taking this course when every other avenue is closed off, when he has no plau
a ten capitol in the morning is going on for more than a year. dana bash takes us behind the scenes. >> reporter: no, that's not the president. it's a stand-in. but this is the kind of exhaustive prep going on to make sure there are no mistakes. it's not just for the president. senator chuck schumer is the events emcee. >> oh yeah. i don't want to do what chief justice roberts did. he's brilliant and he messed up. >> reporter: roberts messed up the oath four years ago. >> i'll execute -- >> faithfully the office of the president faithfully. >> reporter: he had to go to the white house for a do-over. who what are you afraid of? >> introducing the wrong person, who knows? >> reporter: as chair of the inaugural committee, assumer is preparing for this day more than a year. >> we didn't know who the president would be. but together, it's always done in a bipartisan way. >> reporter: a central focus, trying to avoid problems that put a damper on the last obama inauguration. >> tens of thousands of people missed it. they came in from all over the country. so, we've done symbolic things li
for the traditional inauguration day church service and then up to the capitol where we find dana bash. >> thanks, brianna. i am on the west front of the capitol and this is where you're going to see that iconic image of the inauguration, 24 hours from now. this platform will seat about 1600 people and it is really the hottest it ticket in town. you're going to have members of the president and vice president's family, also going to have members of the joint chiefs of staff, the supreme court, governors, senators, house members, actually hearing that some house republicans are not going to be here, even though this is traditionally a bipartisan -- actually a nonpartisan event. this is also the kind of event that draws celebrity supporters. we had james taylor concert effectively here, practicing to sing "america the beautiful" tomorrow, beyonce will be here as well. i want you to look down the mall to see what everybody here is going to see tomorrow. doesn't look like a lot of people now, but we expect to see 600,000 to 800,000 people filling the national mall where don lemon is right now. >> oh,
. dana bash is live in washington. let's talk about dianne feinstein's props first. she's going to be holding a bushmasterer? >> reporter: i'm not sure if she'll be holding it. she might. she will have more than one assault weapon and she's going to have them on display. there you see the bushmaster ar-15. that is was, of course, the kind of weapon used in the newtown shootings. but the reason she is going to do this, i'm told, is to show specifically her fellow democrat, of which there are half a dozen or more that want to do little if anything to change the assault weapon laws, that you don't need these kinds of guns in the average of ordinary people. that is likely the argument she is going to make. again, it's going to be aimed at her fellow democrats resistant to this. but she is going to have a lot of different people with her to make this argument. this is the unveiling of the premier key legislation she promised to put out at the beginning of congress right after newtown. we are expecting to have quite a show when she comes up in about an hour. >> just so people understa
